the tragedy in benghazi that cost the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. john kerry, a long-time member of the senate, head of the foreign relations committee, will have no problem winning confirmation of that body. that will reconclude a fight there. that was a fight the president really didn't want to have this early in what will be his second term. so we expect the nomination to come later today. whether or not the president announces it himself we have yet to hear. back to you. jenna: wendell goler, thank you. jon: let's talk about all this with chris wallace. he is of course the anchor of "fox news sunday". maybe the worst-kept secret in washington. everybody expected it was going to be john kerry. what does he bring to this post, chris? >> well he certainly brings experience. he has been a member of the senate a long time. he is chairman as wendell said of the senate foreign relations committee. he seems to have a good working relationship between president obama and his national security team. in fact obama has used him several times as a personal envoy to dea
mullen and thomas pickering spoke about the report they offered on september 11 attack in benghazi, libya to cut u.s. ambassador christina and three other americans. the report cited systemic failures, leadership and management efficiencies and inadequate security at the conflict facility. three state department officials including eric boswell, assistant secretary of state in diplomatic security have resigned in the wake of the report. next, senators on the foreign relations committee who received the report speak to reporters. how not [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible] >> my understanding is that the standard with which the accountability board looks at people is a very high standard called breach of duty. but there's no question that there were people within the state department that were missed and did not execute in an appropriate way. there is also some cultural issues and i mean, there were no doubt a number of problems. i would just say to that end, i know that secretary clinton was unable to be able to testify in an open setting. i do think it's imper
that the state department suffered from systemic failures in its response to the threat in benghazi. and it says, insufficient security was present on the ground. the report also looks into the military response to the attack which killed our ambassador and three other americans. defense secretary leon panetta now saying it was clearly a terrorist attack despite early reports blaming it on a protest that got out of hand. >> as always with these kinds of situations there is a mix here but clearly with regards to one of the facilities involved, a direct attack on that facility. i think that there's no question that extremists were involved in those attacks and i think that, you know, we were able to try to respond as best we could at the time. bill: chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge on the story from the beginning. what does the report conclude, catherine? >> reporter: thai, bill, good morning. it is a scathing report. there are 29 recommendations, five of which are classified. all of which have been accepted by the secretary of state hillary clinton. this report concludes that t
.s. consulate in benghazi. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed that day. the panel finding security in benghazi was grossly inadequate to cope with the attack, that washington ignored repeated requests to beef up personnel, and ultimately a lack of transparency, responsiveness and leadership senior levels both this washington and in libya. alise, what do you make of this report. a lot of these findings we've been talking about for a very long time. >> that's right, but also in the last few months, there's been so much politicization of this attack, especially with these talking points and the whole issue of susan rice, ambassador susan rice and what she said about whether there was a protest. this report didn't find that there was a protest, but it also kind of really is the first look at what went wrong, a kind of very sobering look i'd say of what went wrong. and they said that basically the state department and the embassy in libya kind of missed the warning signs that there was an imminent attack coming. there wasn't a specific threat, but a lot of attacks on ot
. >>> finally, some real answers about the benghazi attack that killed four americans. we now know more than reason for the grossly inadequate security. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we begin with president obama's call to action against what he calls the national epidemic of gun violence amid the trauma over the newtown school massacre, he has put vice president biden in charge of the agenda that could be submitted to congress next month. and a growing number of americans want action from the government. a brand new poll shows that 52% of u.s. adult dults favor major restrictions on guns, making all guns illegal versus 47% last august. let's turn to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's joining us. the president came out and didn't mince very words. >> reporter: no, wolf. this is the first time that president obama has laid out a time line. he appointed vice president biden to lead this group of cabinet lawmakers to come out with some solutions and he wants those recommends from him no later than january. the president said this time washington won't just t

and work continues for many people this week your work on the hill with the two benghazi hearings, one in the house and one in the senate this week. but news that secretary clinton is ill and has been injured with a concussion and will not testify. are you confident that others who will show up in her place will provide much-needed answers. >> i am sure they can provide answers, but ultimately, i believe that secretary clintonville to testify. i have a great respect for secretary clinton. no one would know more about this than she would. no one would be in a position, really to answer the tough questions of secretary clinton. once she has recovered, i believe it is important that she testify. i know that the chairwoman of the international affairs committee believes that secretary clinton is an indozensible witness. what happened in benghazi, there are so many unanswered questions, it appears so many things went wrong and too many people in the administration were trying to put out a false story, which accounts, i believe, for the constant changing of the story, as we have gone on and
been investigating what went wrong in september's deadly attack in benghazi. congress will receive the report at a closed hearing on wednesday. the state department is also expected to present recommendations on improving security at u.s. embassies. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton will not testify at this week's congressional hearings about that benghazi report as originally planned. that's because she is recovering from a concussion. clinton sustained the injury after she fainted during a bout with a stomach flu. she's moner toed by doctors who recommended she take the week off. >>> president obama appears ready to nominate senator john kerry as hillary clinton's successor. a democrat who spoke with cnn tells us that kerry announcement could come as early as this week. kerry is the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. many of his senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle have expressed support for him and he's likely to easily win confirmation as secretary of state. back to candy crowley in newtown. candy? >> thanks, dana. coming up, 20 years ago, she lear
